was at the speech. he's joining us now live. nic, was this another simple ramble expose, if you will, by gadhafi, a little bit more normal than what he said yesterday, or was it just vintage gadhafi? >> reporter: i think this was gadhafi going on the offensive, far from throwing in the towel and giving up here. a two and a half hour speech, longer than some of his other speeches. the symbolism was there, carried live on national tv. walked into the room and crowds of his supporters chanted and he literally stood taking all this adulation for ten minutes before he sat down and started speaking. he had a number of threats, not only for the united states, as we heard there, but for the rebels. on the one hand telling the rebels just there's gunfire going on in the background in tripoli, not only telling the rebels that they should put down their weapons and they wouldn't face charges or they could still sort of stop the fighting, if they wanted to, which was strange because at the same time he was attacking them, bombing them in the east of the country, as ben wedeman was witnessing, but also he wa

funding of national public radio and the use of federal funds to acquire radio content. it is time for american citizens to stop funding an organization that can stand on its own feet. long before any of the recent news stories on videos or the juan williams fiasco, i sponsored legislation in congress to pull the plug on taxpayer funding for n.p.r. i enjoy some programs on n.p.r., but i have long believed it can stand on its own. the pointed issue is not the quality or content of programming on n.p.r., the point is not the degree to which americans support the arts, radio news, and educational programs, the point today is whether government programs and services that can be funded privately or otherwise available in the private sector should receive taxpayer funding. . apart from constitutional concerns, as a country we no longer have this luxury any more. with the national debt over $13 trillion, the government can't simply to fund nonessential services. let me add that no one can really argue that these programs will disappear if americans are no longer forced to subsidize them w

calculation using the c.b.o. baseline, real spending approved for fy 2011 to date is $34 billion lower than was provided in fy 2010. a cut of $18 billion in real security spending and $16 billion in domestic spending. with this amendment, we'll be cutting domestic spending by another $6 billion, and in normal terms but more than in inflation-adjusted dollars. democrats have been chastised for only cutting $10 billion from fy 2010. madam president, i would note that even in that comparison which fails to take into account many factor-of-life increases, we should all understand that domestic spending is being cut by more than $14 billion while security spending is slated to increase. furthermore, madam president, we are now halfway through the fiscal year. agencies have spent an average of 50% of their funds. each dollar we reduce at this time has the effect of doubling the cut made in programs for the rest of the year. our subcommittee chairmen recognize the difficulties that this level of spending will create for the programs. accordingly, many of my colleagues on the appropriations committ
by rand health, lead to a much larger reduction in the use of medical care, and seriously compromise access to needed health care. there are a lot more thoughtful ways to harness the cost of medicaid than what the colleges are proposing. it reflects the common sense of philosophy among individuals of federal and state government. the medicaid maintenance is the state's responsibility in the near term until full health reform is reached in 2014. after that, 100% of the cost of medicaid expansion included in health reform will be born by the federal government and phased down to 90% in 2020. furthermore, the aca costs state to the federal government, and institutes delivery system reform, and finance the state efforts to establish medical homes in medicaid which will improve care for those with substantial health need. we give the states important tools to fight fraud in the medicare and medicaid. we need to think about the profound devastation some of the republicans proposals would have on working families and the state health agencies that serve them. i've been here for a long time.
